New Jersey

Liberty Hall Museum

Fill your class with curiosity as they see, touch, and re-enact history at the Liberty Hall museum! Built in 1772, Liberty Hall is the perfect place to discover the living past. Students can roleplay as citizens in colonial New Jersey on the eve of the Revolutionary War, and choose who to declare allegiance to, as educators in period clothing relate to them the history of the state’s rebellion from Britain. In the Changing Childhood program, groups can handle artifacts while learning what life was like across five periods of the country’s history, and engage in games and activities.
